Bruckell's engineers love the classic I6 motor but would be the first to admit its somewhat lacking for performance driving. So when challenged to make a more focused fast-road and track variant of the Moonhawk, using this much loved motor, they jumped at the chance!
Bruckell presents, the Moonhawk Clubsport, a totally revised and rebuilt I6, including increased compression, gas flowed and ported cylinder head port-matched to an optimised inlet manifold and larger carburetor. The bottom end has been treated to forged pistons and H-beam connecting rods, allowing for an increased rev limit and facilitating the use of Nitrous Oxide. A notably more aggressive cam profile has been used, moving peak torque up the rev range dramatically, with the engine now delivering around 215hp @ 5200 RPM, with peak torque of around 230 lb/ft @ 4750 RPM, this has made the engine somewhat peaky, but gives the car a sporting character and willing delivery, whilst maintaining excellent low-speed manners.
Borrowing body parts from the V8 Special, the Clubsport is factory painted in glowing Yellow and Black livery, with a welcoming beige interior, and the sports steering wheel from the V8 Sport model. Weight is down to around 3500lb thanks to the removal of a number of parts not aligned to its fast road intent, side pipe exhaust (*Not legal in all states or countries, please check your local laws), and wide body-colour wheels complete the exterior package.
Chassis revisions include bespoke race-derived suspension, optimised and tuned as such that sway bars are unnecessary (contributing to weight saving). Finally, performance brake pads are fitted, to ensure confident stopping capability.
The I6 has showed its true character, its ability to perform as a sporting engine, our engineers are now busy working on an additional step up in performance for this already focused model, speak to your local dealer for a sneak preview of the Clubsport-SC...
